How To Choose Proper Tools for your Beads Work Design

Before you start working with beads you should make sure that you have all of the tools that you are going to need. There will be many tools that can make your time beading more enjoyable and easier as well. Take a few moments to consider the following beading tools and make a list so that you know to pick them up the next time that you head out.   It will be very important for you to purchase chain nose pliers. These will have flat jaws on them and they will also come to a point at the end. When you shop for these pliers you may see that you can purchase cheap ones or expensive ones. You may also find that you can purchase ergonomical pliers. These will be the best way to go because you will be using them a lot and they are going to be in your hands all of the time. You do not want your hands to become sore. Read More →

My Beauty Princess: Baptism Theme, Invitations & Girl Dresses

Remember my comeback post? I’ve promised then to let you to peek on the Baptism Invitations I’ve made for my baby girl Sarah. As I said, I started the Baptism Theme from her cold pink tone baptism dress. Together with our best god-mom Deea, picked up the dresses for Sarah and Denise (her 5 years old daughter) from Princess.Dresses.

There are times when I feel like doing it myself… when everybody asks me why, and the answer is: “I have the pleasure and often, my misdoes lighter” :))  The result : I worked on every detail, even though I had just about 4 months from giving natural birth and I was still breast feeding. :)

The wedding baptism theme was Small Roses & Organza. Colours: Greypink & Ivory.

Sarah’s organza dress had mini embroided roses on it as u can see, had the Pink Organza & Ivory Brocart for table small roses and green wild flowers, not less but I used ivory & pink colors for the invitations. :))

What’s Pink In Your Shoulder Bag?

I’ve noticed I’m not the only women who gets her joy from her joy for Colors. From my statistics Pink is the most popular Happy Color for women, specially the ones in the Beauty Business. Most probably that’s why all Beauty Magazines are spoiling our eyes every day with Pink Beauty Candies we drooling about…

I find myself smiling whenever a pink object is coming out from my purse at home, at the office, even if I’m in a bank and everybody’s watching me… I wear a smile right in the left corner of my pink lips when my pink phone matched with my pink eyeshadow rings my “Sex And The City”  purse out! :)

New Collectible Perfumes by Bond No. 9: Andy Warhol’s Collection Review

Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory by Bond No. 9

We all love perfumes… We, so called fashionistas love scents as much as we love designer clothes.We all have this fascination with glamour as an escape hatch for our own age of global anxiety. And how better to express that glamour than with fragrance? But it’s that all that it can express? Who wasn’t in love with a perfume bottle? Many of us collect them, me and my mother kept our favorites and so are most of you…Isn’t it? But some think of it as Art Works, really!
Bond No. 9 is an edgy downtown perfumer, committed to art and design (not just the art of scent-making, but the visual components, too) . I think the idea of combining Perfumery with Pop Art is extraordinary!
This morning I received two of Bond No.9 latest creations Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory (I love) & Saks Fifth Avenue. I’ve decided to follow their model and review them from two angles: the fragrance and the Pop Art bottle and package design. I consider BN9 a luxury affordable perfume brand (although an expensive line, it’s available in different sizes) , a must-have in fashionista’s wardrobe, an Art collection that promises a great value in the future. Really ladies, some are already to die for…

Bra Straps: Out of sight or Sparkling?

Swarovski Strappers

There are all sorts of bra straps on the market, people talking about ‘Ugly bra strap syndrome’ (out-of-place strap showing) and how they should be arrested by the the Strap Police.

I never mentioned unsightly bra straps in my previous Fashion Mistakes post, because I think there are occasions when it’s not really a mistake if they are visible. But, we all know exposing it doesn’t make a fashion statement. More over, falling bra straps dangling around your elbows is very more than annoying. So, we all should let the discomfort steal from our glow and avoid look cheap sometimes from negligence…
